  1. I don't think it's fair to generalize like that. There's plenty of Korean monitors meant for the internal market that have a track record of offering great features and bang for the buck.
  2. I thought that Sliger case was intended for use with an AIO. I believe the asatek-based ones work in it. What I've never understood about thes sliger cases is what makes people pay close to 300 bucks for them when you have plenty of good ITX cases at or under the 100 dollar ballpark.
  3. I had originally considered an m-atx build but the only mobo I've found is the ASRock X570M Pro4 and from what I've read it has some reliability issues. I'd love to have some options from gigabyte or asus but as it stands it doesn't feel like that'll happen anytime soon.
  4. I meant small in comparison to the large 600T case I have right now. from what I've been reading, there isn't really much of a difference between a high-end air cooler and AIO liquid cooler. They're cheaper and more reliable.
  5. I'm planning to upgrade my 6-year old setup. Currently running a 4770K-based setup with 16GB RAM, a Vega 56, and a 1TB Samsung EVO drive. I'm looking to go for a Mini-ITX build this time since all I ever used apart from my GPU was an add-in network card so I don't see the point in getting a full ATX motherboard. The reasoning behind it is that I've been doing some 4K video editing and it's painfully slow on this PC. Also, some of the more recent games I'm playing such as APEX Legends and Fallout 4 do not run very well. I have a 144Hz 1440p monitor but my current setup struggles to push past 70-80fps. I'm not sure whether to do a full upgrade or to carry over the SSD and GPU I already have to the new build and wait to upgrade those at a later date. In case I do a full upgrade, I've linked below the parts I'm planning to use. One exception is the Optane drive. The one I'm actually planning to use is the 480GB U.2 one with an adapter cable but it didn't show up in pcpartpicker https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Optane-480GB-XPoint-Adapter/dp/B07CZ8ZKL9/ref=sr_1_4 So the questions I had that I was hoping someone with more experience would be able to answer are these: 1. Would a 3900X work fine with a Mini-ITX board like the one on my list? 2. Are you aware of some compatibility issues with the SSD I mentioned? 3. Would you say it's fine to do a full upgrade or should I do the partial CPU+mobo+RAM upgrade and wait on the CPU and GPU until the new gen comes out? I'm open to any other comments or suggestions you might have. thanks for your time.

  6. Not the kind of packaging you're thinking of.
  7. If they are outsourcing to Cognizant, then it's cognizant who is responsible for providing a good working environment and the support that the employees need. But facebook should act after find out how badly their indirect employees are doing.
  8. the cooldown is implemented when attempting to login. if you have a password hash dump from that site you don't need to ping the site for every login attempt, you just need to guess the right combination of characters that will produce that hash and voilá.
  9. Looks like Blizzard's strategy of cutting costs while producing more (lower quality) games is finally going into full force Feelsbad for those people who through no fault of their own will find themselves out of work, as well as for those who are staying on and will have to deal with higher stress levels and probably having to choose between delivering work that doesn't meet their standards or overworking themselves to death under Activision-Blizzard's new corporate direction. What do you think this means for the studios' future game plans? Are we going to see more of a title-churning company instead of the quality we're used to expect from blizzard?

  10. every time someone tells me not to stand in front of the microwave or I'll get cancer I want to punch them in the face. 1. It's not ionizing radiation 2. The wavelength of microwaves is 10cm and the holes in the door are like 1mm. that's a 10.000-fold reduction in radiation outisde the microwave compared to the inside. Hell, eating a banana is way more radioactive then standing a meter in front of a microwave. Ignorant people are the problem of this world.
  11. I agree, two disks is more than ok. Most likely they had a RAID6 configuration. It's extremely unlikely to have 3 disks fail in such a short amount of time that you aren't able to pop in another drive and rebuild the array. They just got very unlucky.
  12. Probably not the best streaming camera. It overheats rapidly when filming video, and you'd have to get a capture card to ingest the hdmi output from the camera as well as a continous DC power supply. Honestly it's a lot of hassle for what will ultimately end up looking like crap after all compressing and processing is done on twitch's side when you can get a 50 dollar webcam with onboard h.264 processing, pretty good image quality, and just plug&play USB.
  13. I believe if the matter doesn't get solved on youtube, they will give the channel owner information about the claimant so they can settle the matter legally outside youtube, but that means hiring a lawyer and possibly going to trial, and that's a lot of money to spend for small channels.
